Homeland Security Grant Program

FY 2007 Homeland Security Grant Program (HSGP)

The 2007 Homeland Security Grant Program (HSGP) will award more than $1.6 billion to enhance the ability of states, territories, and urban areas to prepare for, prevent, and respond to terrorist attacks and other major disasters. HSGP funds can be used for preparedness planning, equipment acquisition, training, exercises, management, and administration in order to obtain resources that are critical to building and sustaining capabilities that are aligned with the Interim National Preparedness Goal and respective State and Urban Area Homeland Security Strategies.

HSGP includes five distinct programs:

In addition, SHSP supports the implementation of the National Preparedness Goal, NIMS, and the NRP.
    Examples of Allowable Planning Costs

  • Urban Areas Security Initiative (UASI): UASI Program funds address the unique planning, equipment, training, and exercise needs of high threat, high density Urban Areas, and assist them in building an enhanced and sustainable capacity to prevent, protect against, respond to, and recover from acts of terrorism.
    Examples of Allowable Planning Costs

  • Law Enforcement Terrorism Prevention Program (LETPP): LETPP focuses upon the prevention of terrorist attacks and provides law enforcement and public safety communities with funds to support intelligence gathering and information sharing through enhancing/establishing fusion centers; interoperable communications; and collaboration with non-law enforcement partners, other government agencies and the private sector.

  • Metropolitan Medical Response System (MMRS): MMRS funds support MMRS jurisdictions to further enhance and sustain an integrated, systematic mass casualty incident preparedness program that enables an effective response during the first crucial hours of an incident. The program prepares jurisdictions for response to the range of mass casualty incidents, including CBRNE, agricultural and epidemic outbreaks, natural disasters and large-scale hazardous materials incidents.

FY 2006 HSGP After Action Report
The FY 2006 HSGP After Action Report represents state and local recommendations generated during the FY 2006 HSGP after action conference held in San Diego, California, on July 11-12, 2006. The purpose of the meeting was to solicit feedback from state and local partners on the overall FY 2006 HSGP process as well as suggestions for consideration in FY 2007 and future fiscal years. Approximately 130 state and local representatives from 46 states and territories participated, and actively contributed through four working groups that focused on homeland security planning, HSGP guidance and application, effectiveness analysis, and risk analysis. The report outlines 32 specific recommendations that were developed by the four working groups and briefed to all participants during the final plenary session.
